Private Space

I'm pretty much a social person. I have friends and I like to spend time with them. All during my adult life I have had friends and family as well as an abundance of young children to teenagers in and out of my home. (Remember all those exchange students? I also placed and supervised up to 10 at a time during a typical school year and did many activities with them and their host families)
Carlos on the other hand relishes his alone time to meditate, read and listen and play music. His one complaint over the years has been his lack of private space to use as he would like. So when we worked with R & D, our architects we emphasized Carlos' need for personal space and this is what they came up with!

Now I know where all those thousands of books he plans to bring with him will go. This is his dream and it looks like it will happen. Lately he's been talking about an 'infrared sauna' or a hot tub... hmmm , I'm not sure about either of those in Merida! I think maybe I'll have to stop him at this. After all I need some space too.


  1. As a classic introvert, I can totally relate to Carlos' need for private space. His area looks heavenly.

  2. Ditto on the introvert part. Those high walls in the back make going out to the garden a very private space, but also the library/music room looks good. For the sauna or hot tub...just step outside most any day. Maybe a hot tub would feel good during Dec/Jan when the pool water is icy.
